    I need to add to my “likes”. Here goes...

    I was pretty high on LVE when the Cowboys drafted him. I guess I was right from the get-go.

    Ok friends and fans, be sure to hit that button on your way out. Thanks in advance. ;)

    It was more that we had a chance at Derwin James rather than drafting LVE for me, I certainly had no clue he was going to contribute this year and be a force. People are down on Taco, unfortunately he is the poster child for back of the first round talent acquisition in other words takes a couple years of seasoning. Would I like him further down the road, of course, this is the norm though for that slot and position selection. We are spoiled by Jaylon, LVE, Martin, T Smith, and Fred.

    I'll take a plate of it, I was in the Sutton or Ridley camp, LVE doesn't even look like a rookie and is only going to get better.

    Loved the LVE pick from the jump!

    I thought it was amazing seeing Ridley have a cause of the "whoopsie's" with that pass off his hands into LVEs chest

    A lot of us didn't love the pick thinking we were getting a slow LB and missing a playmaking WR. I was in that camp, but turns out we got a high potential LB thats already making plays.

    LOL, you are downplaying it. Dude is ALL WORLD given all the facts so far. It's ridiculous. I didn't mind the pick at all but I am admittedly shocked at how good he has been. Dude is gonna be a perennial All-Pro if he keeps this up..He's a freaking rookie and already better than 90% of the league's starting LB'ers. Insane.

    I wasn't totally against the pick just felt at the time we could have addressed another position with a more proven commodity. However, I am very satisfied with the pick good FO work.

    Hes better than Jaylon Smith. He will be a pro bowl linebacker for years. The guy is a complete stud.

    I an often wrong abut the draft, I usually am. But I was spot on about LVE.

    So instead of eating crow this time I get to pass and I'm so happy, LVE looks great out there.

    I never like to make such bold prediction about a rookie but he sure looks like it so far.

    Just seen on. A post game show.
    NFL has to put LVE on the pro bowl ballot this week. Because of pressure from the fans and media.

    Also remember,her the saying...Cowboys can’t win with Lee out of the lineup.
    Well they are 4-1 this year without Lee, but with LVE.

    He also has 100 tackles already. It is a record setting pace. For the team.
    And not just tackles, they are game changing plays and tackles. Tackles for losses, not giving up 1st downs.

    He is only going to get better. My guess, if the draft was redone, LVE never even gets close to us.

    I already wonder how he slid to 19, had all the pedigree Urlacher did and that kid went 7th overall to Chicago, not 19th overall to the Cowboys.

    Jerry said LVE is the new starter even when Lee comes back!
